the music ends outside . >> well, let's hear from the lieutenant. welcome. >> lieutenant jack hart and i'm here on behalf of acting captain sullivan. i wanted to say that we did receive several complaints from the july event. and i have documentation not only cocomo, but regarding problems with events that were there. at this point we're denying loudspeaker permit. your investigator had recently done a loudspeaker or decibel level check and what i have learned that it might be a structural problem with the club itself rather than bad behavior of people inside or intentional wanting to be loud or other promoters putting on events inside. and that those have not been addressed. as soon as those are addressed and if there is outreach we can assist with that. we have a huge email database through the police station so get the word out and refer them to them or to the commission or to us directly, so we can address these complaints, but we haven't seen that and officer robinson hasn't seen any report back from cocomo itself to us about what specific outreach was done. also, the permit w
